Spicy Queso Scrambled Eggs (Ready in 20 Minutes)

This week, we're sharing one of our favourite scrambled eggs recipe.

When we consulted with our chef, we shared that we wanted to make the recipe Peruvian.

In order to do so, we use our Aji Amarillo marinade paste.

Aji Amarillo is a yellow chili pepper base and is a bit spicy but not overwhelming. It balances the heat with hints of mango and passion fruit flavors to bring out the best in every bit.
"Why have I not heard of this marinade paste before!?" - Kyle S. (actual Brasa customer).
